Every trekker has a dream of doing Everest Base Camp trek at least once in a lifetime. Similarly, they are fond of their dream. And now is the chance to achieve their dreams. Everest Base Camp trekking starts and ends in Lukla. There sits the world’s dangerous Tenzing Hillary Airport. The trekking trail winds through culturally rich Sherpa villages such as Phakding, Namche, Dingboche, Pangboche, Pheriche and Lobuche. You can also enjoy breathtaking, magnificent views of the world’s tallest and beautiful Himalayan peaks- Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, etc.

The 300 hundred years old Tengboche Monastery enhances the beauty of this region.  The visit to the famous Ama Dablam is a sight worth a million bucks.  But wait until you hike to the top of Kalapathar (5545m) that provides an intimate and equal panorama of Everest, Nuptse, and Lhotse as well as the mysterious Khumbu Glacier. Then walk through the glaciers and hills to reach Everest Base Camp which is the climate of this trek. At 5360m Everest  Base Camp is the meeting place of international mountaineers from all over the world taking its beauty and glory of Mt. Everest-Goddess Dolma.

Wildlife and Biodiversity in Everest Base Camp Trek

People, Culture & Religion

The indigenous and ethnic inhabitants of the Everest region (Khumbu) are Sherpas. Sherpas are known for their hard work, honesty and hospitality behavior. Sherpas follow the Buddhist religion. Tengboche Monastery is the most known and oldest stupa of all. The trail is set off with numerous mani walls, stupas, Chortens, etc.

 

Major Festivals

Mani Rimdu and Lhosar are the major festivals of the Everest region but  Mani Rimdu is a unique and famous festival in the Sherpa community.

How to get there

The easiest way to get to the Everest region is by plane. Flights operate daily from Kathmandu to Lukla by private airlines but in peak seasons, air seats are scarce. So, you can also get to Lukla by taking a bus or private vehicle from Kathmandu to Jiri. Then you can trek from there to Khumbu.
